Mmmm, I love tagine! Spicey cumin flavours and a really easy one-pot meal for a hungry family

 Serves 4 comfortably

1 onion chopped

3 cloves garlic crushed

3cm piece of fresh ginger finely grated

500g pasture raised beef strips/cubes/ chicken/ ostrich cubes/ venison cubes

1 carrot peeled and chooped

5ml cinnamon

5ml cumin

500g butternut cubes

375ml vegetable stock

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 cinnamon stick

2 large baby marrows thickly slices

6 turkish apricots

15ml honey

handful of fresh coriander to serve


Cauli cous cous:

1 head cauliflower chopped up fine a food processor or you can grate it

1 onion

salt and pepper


Heat avo oil in a pan and fry onion and garlic and ginger

Add the beef and cook until browned

add the carrot, butternut, stock, tomatoes and cinnamon

Add the turkish apricots

Lower the heat and let it simmer for 20mins

Add the marrow and let it cook for 10 mins

Mix in the honey and coriander


For the cous cous

Heat olive in a pan and fry onions

add the grated cauliflower and stir until your desired texture. (I like mine with some crunch still)

Can add fresh chopped dates to cous cous and some cumin if you want a really different flavour
